An affordable Yarra pinot made for enjoyment now, but with complex winemaker touches. It's Timo's base red wine but has hints of stalk and oak, giving a savoury sense to the nose and taste. Fruit is like sour cherry with supporting acidity, making this a good value quaffable drop from an intriguing winemaker. - Michael L
100% de-stemmed, the fruit is crushed and put straight into old format oak after fermentation, then left alone for 12 months except for the occasional pump over. Vibrant and bright on the nose with lifted red fruits. Sour cherry, spice and mocha notes with soft, supple tannin structure make this very easy to enjoy. - Chris L
Bloody Hill is a second label for Yarra Valley cult-winemaker, Timo Mayer. Timo and his son, Rivar, work together on the Bloody Hill wines, selecting the fruit and and working alongside growers that they have built relationships with over many years. In addition, Rivar has added new plantings to the Mayer estate specifically for Bloody Hill, which we're looking forward to seeing at maturity!
The word "Villages" has been added to the label from the 2020 vintage. This is in reference to the fact that the fruit for Bloody Hill is sourced from selected sites around the Yarra. For example, the Chardonnay is sourced from Panton Hill, from an old Bress Vineyard, the Syrah from Coldstream, and the Syrah/Tempranillo blend from Gembrook. It is a fantastic and delicious way to explore the differing subregions of the Yarra!
